someone harm another and the reason why people find it hard to leave because, first, is fe fear. so many are paralyzed with fear, and may have tried to leave and seen very bad consequences of that. like arnicas laying in violence, harming of family pets or othe others. so it's a very dangerous situation, and we know that when someone tries to leave they're at much more risk of being harmed. so in philadelphia, we have the philadelphia domestic violence hotline. and people can call any time at one-86 sick-723 hi 3014 and get help in order to create a safety plan towards leaving. >> as you just pointed out both of these cases these women were trying to leave and that's exactly when the violence exploded. in fact the family members were actually used in both of these cases. what do you say to the woman sitting at home right now, saying i want to get out and i'm so afraid watch do you do? >> you know, there's help there.

8:30 am
accurate real flex what's going on, dave. >> dee constructive sunshine, too, because we have it now but as it warms things up, we'll get those clouds again like we had yesterday. that will keep the temperatures from warming up too much. we got a quick warm up this morning. already started here in philadelphia 38 degrees. 40 degrees that is where we are right now. so we warmed up 2 degrees that light breeze out of the north northwest still bringing in the cool air. so looks like it will be getting even colder tonight. not seeing that warm breeze return yet. 32 in allentown. pottstown is at 33. there's that 40 in philadelphia. below freezing still in millville at 31. atlantic city just above freezing at the airport. of course, right along the coast is nice and milder there. thanks to that ocean water temperature. a little warmer keeping the air warmer there. there might be few showers today. nothing on ultimate doppler timing this we'll go hour by hour today you see about two, 3:00 o'clock. little disturbance coming through and these showers work their way through the western suburbs. they'll be rain showers. it's cold out there.
8:31 am
but not ld cold enough for snow. look at a few rain showers to the west. we'll talk about the big warmup in the seven day. i'll have that coming up. you know our pets aren't picky. they will eat just about anything that we give them or accidentally drop on to the floor. which leads to some absolutely hilarious tweets on social med media. like mary who says, i feel sorry for people that don't have a dog or a cat. they actually have to pick up the food they drop on the floor. or this from a will will a* list is a. my direct deposit needs a hit already because my dog ran out of her nutritious little dog food. she likes people food too much. pet experts say common foods can be tock six to pets. we decided to bring our medical team expert beth galvin to talk about whatnot to feed our four legged friends. good morning, beth. how are you? >> good morning, karen. i'm doing great, thank you. >> let's start off with the big one. we know that probably chocolate is not good for lot of dogs. >> yes. chocolate and coffee are not
8:32 am
good, because those contain stimulants that can be toxic to dogs and good rule of thumb is the darker the chocolate, the more toxic it can be to your dog. you really want to watch out for when you're baking using baking chocolate or chocolate with high cocoa content. this can be really dangerous for dogs and the thing that the dog can become sort of over stimulated just like we can when we have a lot of, h we have lot of caffeine. except for them it's a little bit more dangerous. they can go into the panting and pacing and even seizures and they may not develop symptoms until like six to 12 hours after they ingest coffee or chocolate. so really important to stay on top of that and if you feel like they've gotten into your box of chocolates or they've gotten into the coffee grinds in the trash, you really want to keep a close eye on your pet. karen? >> that's great way especially with halloween coming up. this one seems like a no brainer but don't give your pets alcoh alcohol. some people think it's funny. they'll give them a little beer. why is that so problematic and
8:33 am
not at all funny? >> well, i think it's problematic pets are much much smaller than we are. they'll be much more strongly affected by alcohol than we are. they can really experience something that's kind of scary, karen. a severe drop in blood pressure that can happen very suddenly. so you know a moment that can seem like it's funny can actually be kind of an emergency for a dog. so i think it's really important to try to keep anything that contains alcohol away from your pets. karen? >> how about grapes? i know that's a problem with toddlers. >> yeah. this is a choking hazard for dogs but actually toxic for dogs and i had had no idea when you read about this you should scoop up a grape if you drop it when you're cooking it can affect a dog's kidney function. it can actually in very small amounts be toxic to the dog so you really want to be careful about grapes. i had no idea going into this that would even be a problem and
8:34 am
i've got a couple of dogs who eat pretty much everything that i drop on the floor. karen. >> the grape seed extract. maybe that what it is. there's sweetener that's a particular problem. what is it and what's the issue and what it's in? what do i avoid. >> it's called sile will he toll you find it in sort of gum, sugar free gums, canny, mints things like that. it can be really toxic bought it can cause a severe blood sugar drop in your pet. i think that's something to really keep you%d if you've got gum in your purse. keep your purse out of the way, keep candy up out of the way especially going into halloween. keeping that out of the reach because my dogs, i don't know about your pets, but my dogs are total counter surfers. fits anywhere even close to the edge of the counter, it's on the floor. it's in their mouth. so reall really keeping an eye n that, too. keeping your purse up and out of reach of your dog, too. karen? >> all right, beth, thank you so much. yes. we have lost many a steak off the grill and cake off the counter. thank you so much. (laughter). >> let us know what your pets

chase utley trying to break up a double play the mets are leading in this game. but he's not -- you're supposed to be really going to the bag to break it up. he didn't slide until he got to ruben tejada the second baseman. broke his leg. tejada is out for the playoffs. major league baseball has suspended chase utley for games three and four but that's two games. he should be suspended for the rest of the playoffs. but that's just my opinion. >> that's good. knocking the king, more like knocking the court gesture because your opinions are a joke. chase utley did nothing wrong. in fact his play has been done several hundred times before. the only difference, was unfortunately, tejada broke his leg. chase did everything according to the rules of major league baseball. i think that in the age of baseball, million dollar contracts that it's nice to see a little old school baseball and chase is known for his hard playing. why would the playoffs be any different? yeah, sure, sure, shannon.

just watch the t shirt -- wash the t-shirt after wearing it for the next two place. when chase utley gets suspended we're all going to cry. no, we're not going to cry. you'll cree because it's not about whether it was a good play. playing hard is good. playing dirty is unacceptable, and he didn't even slide. if you look at it. maybe you will some day. he bowled into the guy never did slide and that's dirty. and that's uncalled for and i don't want to hear what else happened in baseball. he's not a phillie any more so don't worry about it. he's a dodger. think you have what it takes to knock the king? eskin, okay. shoot your video up load it to us and i'll talk to you next week. ♪
